We here at Lavish&Squalor take pride in our independence and abilities in offering you experiences that reach beyond our retail walls. We love to expose you to authentic brand cultures and cumulatively share in ‘the lifestyle’. One brand we know that has been much apart of fashions political, street-cultural and we’re sure, your growing years is none other than, Fred Perry.

Fred Perry recently teamed up with Don Letts, member of Big Audio Dynamite and director of doc “Tales of Dr. Funkenstein” and The Clash’s video, “Rock the Casbah” to create a series of films on the ideas and ideals that drove emerging subcultures, throughout Fred Perry’s 60 year brand history. The series chronicles the emerging cultures of the original teds and mods, UK punk, the influence of black heritage and the worldwide effect of the cultural revolution of the late 20th century.

L&S has been chosen to screen these films, Thursday the 13th of December on our Upper Level so we’ve coupled it with a 30% discount for you from 8-9pm, that day on all of our Fred Perry merchandise. Come enjoy the films, popcorn and a cheers with us from 9-10pm.

Fred Perry followers, you won’t want to miss this.

UPPER LAVISH’S ‘CINQ à SEPT’ KICKS OFF OUR NEW GALLERY THIS FRIDAY

You are invited to sip complimentary cocktails this Friday from 6-8pm, while enjoying our first gallery installation featuring local artist, Lisandra Pellegrini on our signature winter brick walls. Show runs from Friday February 17th to Thursday February 23rd, during regular store hours.

Lisandra Pellegrini is a Toronto-based artist, formally trained at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD). With the encouragement and constant support of her high school teachers, her inspiration first came from working with bright primaries filtering the boldness of colours with layers and tone. Pellegrini’s main objective is to allow the viewer to recall a time when they were a child having a favourite colour. As she paints, she places the emphasis on the process, allowing each piece to be truly subjective. Expressionist, passionate, spontaneous gesture- in constant search for new inspiration, Lisandra finds it in the everyday; making the everyday, everything.
